Asia Biome Cards
This product is currently sold out.
Asia has a sampling of every biome. The Himalayan Mountains contain the tallest of all, and the wildlife there is fascinating. It's all there in vast tracts of desert, plains and forest. Polar Regions contain some of the same species found in North America. Can you imagine how that happened? We explore the Dolpo of the mountains, an Indian town in the Thar Desert, a commune in the temperate forest, Mongolians in the grasslands, Ma'dan of the wetlands of the Tigris-Euphrates, the Nenet of the polar regions and people in a large city carved out of the Tropical Forest.
Designed for elementary classes, this material covers all the biomes found on a particular continent and offers a structure for independent research. Three-part cards include: a description card for older readers, an illustrated picture card and a label. Each biome is explored with cards for these examples:
People, Food, Clothing, Shelter, Transportation, Culture.
All three cards are printed with coding on the backside for continent, biome and the classifications identified above. Animal cards are chosen for their interesting environmental adaptations. Indigenous, rural and urban cultures are explored for a realistic view of people on the continent. A teacher’s manual outlines lesson presentations and offers ideas for extensions. A black-line biome map and masters of the illustrations are also included. All sets are cut and ready to laminate. (6 to 12 years)
